Optical absorption is the most fundamental optical property characterizing light-matter interactions in materials and can be most readily compared with theoretical predictions. However, determination of optical absorption cross-section of individual nanostructures is experimentally challenging due to the small extinction signal using conventional(More)
Relativistic quantum mechanics predicts that when the charge of a superheavy atomic nucleus surpasses a certain threshold, the resulting strong Coulomb field causes an unusual atomic collapse state; this state exhibits an electron wave function component that falls toward the nucleus, as well as a positron component that escapes to infinity. In graphene,(More)
Vacancy-induced magnetism in graphene bilayers is investigated using spin-polarized density functional theory calculations. One of two graphene layers has a monovacancy. Two atomic configurations for bilayers are considered with respect to the position of the monovacancy. We find that spin magnetic moments localized at the vacancy site decrease by ∼10% for(More)
